Sunday morning a South County woman stopped in Sam's Liquor to discover she'd won a major prize.
The $590.5 million-winning Powerball ticket is in the hands of a Florida resident, but Saturday's drawing was lucky for one South County woman who claimed a $1 million Powerball prize in Lemay. A manager at Sam's Liquor told St. Louis Post-Dispatch that a regular stopped into the store early Sunday to discover her ticket matched five of the winning numbers. It was one of two $1 million dollar tickets sold this weekend in Missouri, according to the report. She isn't the only South County resident to strike the Powerball lottery in the last week--a $1 million winning ticket was purchased at Telegraph Liquors in Oakville last Wednesday.
